Results of the day and current standings.
Marseille and Lens stall, Lorient unstoppable
After 5 straight victories in Ligue 1, OM were stopped at home by Rennes after a match that was only slightly dominated (15 shots to 12, 59% possession and 11 corners to 7). The Marseillais remain undefeated, but see PSG take 2 points ahead when leaving for the break.
Lorient, for its part, continues its impressive career with its 1-3 victory at the promoted Auxerre which allows it to occupy 3rd place with 3 points behind PSG. Lens experienced a small setback with its draw, while Lyon are on 3 defeats in a row and therefore fall back. Monaco takes advantage of this with a very good series and reminds us that it has its say.
The real bad start to the season among the “big” squads is for Nice, who lose again and are only 13th. Finally, we note the first victory of the season for Ajaccio, which should do a lot of good for the promoted.
